Universal Display Provides Phosphorescent OLED Displays to the U.S. Army

Universal Display has provided eight phosphorescent OLED (PHOLED) displays to the Project Director–Common Hardware Systems (PD-CHS), and the US Army Communication Electronics Research and Development Engineering Center (CERDEC). The wrist-mounted PHOLED displays are developed using thin versatile metal foils.

The displays were offered to PD-CHS representatives, and to Raymond Schulze, CERDEC’s technical leader for testing and evaluation. The devices received positive feedback when they were displayed last month at the C4ISR On-the-Move testing setting of the U.S. Army located at Fort Dix.

The prototypes were developed and designed as part of the US Department of Defense program to generate a ruggedized, lightweight and thin communication unit. The devices depicted numerous information sources, such as a real-time unmanned air vehicle video feed, during the exercises conducted at Fort Dix. They offer soldiers with benefits that are likely to enhance operational performance and to lessen risk.

Each of the eight units features a full-motion organic LED display that utilizes amorphous-silicon TFT backplanes and a 4.3” quarter video graphics array. Universal Display developed the front planes by utilizing the full-color PHOLED technology, which allows the displays to consume lesser power when compared to the active-matrix liquid crystal displays.
